who wants be president of the united states ronald reagan opposed these assault weapons in clear language. the house caucus are having their retreat today. we heard today there was no talk of guns. i think a lot of republicans want this to go away. the speak aespeaker's office sa there is legislation pulled down we will deal with it then. that minority may be ultrahard-core conservative gun owners that have made this a test or it is the nra but it has put republican ares with an active number of brain cells who wish to see a future of their party who have been painted into a corner. >> they are on the wrong side of these polls showing where 74% of the american public is. i think that is where the politics meet the public opinion. we know you have reported on the fact that congress is not a broadly represented institution. republicans are representing these districts. so the response is that our districts say something different. >> and al ex, the thing about this retreat, they are proudly getting it out there. we know they have to have down so privately. but they actually want th
of americans agree with us on this. and by the way, so did ronald reagan, one of the staunchest defenders of the second amendment, who wrote to congress in 1994 urging them -- this is ronald reagan speaking -- urging them to listen to the american public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacture of military-style assault weapons. [ applause ] and finally, congress needs to help, rather than hinder, law enforcement as it does its job. we should get tougher on people who buy guns with the express purpose of turning around and selling them to criminals. and we should severely punish anybody who helps them do this. since congress hasn't confirmed a director of the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms in six years, they should confirm todd jones, who will be -- who has been acting and i will be nominating for the post. [ applause ] and, at a time when budget cuts are forcing many communities to reduce their police force, we should put more cops back on the job and back on our streets. let me be absolutely clear. like most americans, i believe the sec
resemblance to the party of ronald reagan that would have responded to powell's concerns with an all hands on deck effort to win the war back. it's big enough to win back the white house in 2016. and that's, to the point, we have a more and more bifurcated congress, not the congress you served in. there were 49 votes, only 49 votes for sandy relief last night. that says a lot. there were more than 49 votes for gulf damage and repair after katrina. >> colin powell is a moderate, but i'll tell you what, i understand why ronald reagan reached out to colin powell and saw him as a future leader of the republican party when he let him run the joint chiefs. we need moderate republicans like colin powell on our side. we've run him off. we've run a lot of other moderate republican voters off, and if you want to win 49 states again like ronald reagan won in 1984, if we want to win the landslides that george h.w. bush won, we're going to have to have a much bigger tent, and we can't be the party of todd aiken or richard murdoch or sharon ankle or christine o'donnell. republican extremism in the repub
tradition of going to st. john's right before their inauguration. harry truman, ronald reagan and both president bush's went to st. john's on the actual morning of the inauguration. we watch president barack obama carry on that tradition. bill: remarkable when you are here in washington and you see the white house for the location where we are, lafayette church, st. john's church is on the north end of lafayette park. if you were to walk as a civilian, might be 300 yards total. martha: not today. bill: in this case with the president and first family and amount of security in washington, d.c. as we see the vice president now get inside of his limousine as well, there are no chances taken here. climbing into cadillac 1, coming back to the white house before the procession begins up pennsylvania avenue toward the capitol building. that church is such a beautiful part of our nation's capitol. if you have been here you have seen it and you have seen the history inside of it and how intimate it is as a house of worship. martha: the presidents sit in the pew 54 in st. john's which is reserve
the states. the states created the federal government. >>> that was ronald reagan on january 20th 1981. i remember watching that with my father. my dad just kept saying so much that my mom finally said george, shut up i heard it the first time. my dad kept saying if he lives long enough, he'll change the country and the world. he was right. that's what's so exciting about these days mika. so special. i remember lying in a fetal position on the floor after bill clinton won in 1992. >> that was a special day. >> thinking my world had come to an end. i just -- i loathed the guy. but i remember watching him deliver the inaugural address. just for a split second i said maybe, maybe -- and i think that's the magic of every inauguration. >> in all your years, you've learned to love him. >> i wouldn't go that far. >> oh yes, you would. >> we like each other. >> you should see them together at the clinton global initiative. makes me want to puke. welcome back to a special edition of "morning joe." >> i'm trying to be upbeat here. hope springs eternal on this day. >> it sure does. lo
clinton's second term, he made significant progress on balanced budgets and ronald reagan accomplished tax reforms. >> even if they're dealing with other problems. >> and we have been fortunate to be scandal-free and we want to continue that, but if you look, it's not like we're roaming around the west wing looking for things to do. right now in front of congress and the country you have the need to reduce the deficit and continue to grow the economy, energy and climate change, immigration, gun safety. things are stacked up. and so i think that that is going to provide the sort of focus and energy you need and i think his intention is to run through the tape all the way through. >> gun safety has jumped to the top of the president's agenda since newtown and this week the president promised that the weight of his office behind these proposals, but we're already seeing a lot of resistance from democrats and i want to show some of the reaction this week. senator max baucus "before passing new laws we need a thoughtful debate that respects responsible law abiding gun owners in montana instead

to save the campaign baker of course was chief of stat for ronald reagan before becoming treasury secretary, but that's how he fits into the specific wording of this question. we'll be right back. >>> he did not come clean in the way i expected. i felt he answered the questions in a way that he was ready. i didn't get all the questions asked, but i think the most important questions and answers that people around the world have been waiting to hear were answered, and certainly addressed -- i can only say i was satisfied by the answers. >>> let's bring back the gaggle. number one, lance armstrong was always wanting to dabble in politics. we did a forum with him in 2007 with the livestrong foundation. i remember we had this debate, hey, you know, who are we doing this with? lance or the foundation? the foundation we were more comfortable with than lance, because you never knew when this day was going to come. >> i think this story has gotten so many traction because he was seen as one of the good guys. >> right. the austin guy. >> loved by everyone there, and lance armstrong, in spo
control measures, many of which were supported by president ronald reagan when he worked to pass the assault weapons ban in 1994 when the ban only passed by two votes, that we're going to have to act right now. i think programs like yours are essential to explain how hard this fight is going to be and how motivated every single person that has ever wanted to do anything about this issue needs to do it right now. the president has put his personal prestige behind trying to get this gun. the vice president has worked on common sense reforms, but everybody who is through anything like what you just n d named in cities and communities across the united states of america need to understand that this is going to be hard, tough, long and la boroborious, but it going to be worth it. >> congressman moran, i read on bloomberg that there's an estimation that come 2015 flash flood there is no legislative change, there will be more deaths per year in this country than deaths as a con discrepancies of road traffic accidents. they're anticipating 33,000 gun deaths as compared to 32,000 as a co
was still on the air. ronald reagan was yet to be sworn in and people still made mixed tapes. little did we know, did he know that 31 years later he'd be fighting with the tea party republican over his time in washington. >> remember the '70s? disco was king and rick nolan was in congress raising his own pay while attacking medicare. >> with four terms of seniority i'm able to hit the ground running and be in a position to really step up and make a difference. >> voters agreed and nolan coasted to a victory thanks in part fora late october visit by former president clinton. he isn't the same man. the 69-year-old democrat spent years promoting export and trade in minnesota, was ceo of the minnesota world trade center corporation. he's been married for nearly 30 years, raised four kids, and has ten grand kids. he's even done his share of globe trotting. at one point living in the middle east for four years. joining me now is a new congressman, who is an old congressman, rick nolan. good morning to you. >> good morning. delighted to be here. >> congressman, in our first conversation that we ha
not addressing that? ronald reagan looked into the mental health institutions. why should we take whatever basic civil liberties it? guest: that as a central aspect and both parties agree that certainly, in the case of these high-profile shootings like a new town and the debbie giffords shooting and others that sometimes the problem is with the state of the shooter. we saw that in colorado, apparently as well. in many cases, you look back on these instances and it turns out to their warning signs along the way and that the mental health system, the educational system, did not have any way of taking these people in and channeling them into some kind help for themselves. how you deal with that? have you identify those people? how do you fund these programs? these are legitimate and complicated issues that will probably be part of this debate. there is no easy answer to any of this. my guess is that we will see some incremental changes, efforts to fund particular things, pilot programs that might have some broader lessons that can be applied. host: on the economy, president obama yesterday said the
? ronald reagan closed all of the mental health institutions. why aren't we looking into reestablishing them? versus taking one of our basic civil liberties away. guest: absolutely a central aspect to this -- both parties agree in the case of these high- profile shootings that sometimes the problem is with the state of the shooter. we saw that in colorado. in and he, you look back on these instances and it turns out there were warning lines and that the mental health system, the educational system did not have any way of taking these people in and channeling them in some kind of help for themselves. how do you deal with that? how do you fund these programs? all of those are complicated issues that will probably be part of this debate. there is no easy answer to any of them. what will see are a lot of incremental changes, efforts to fund things, pilot programs that might have some broader lessons. host: on the economy, president obama said the recession is over. we are on our way to the recovery. might republicans take issue with that part of the speech? guest: they will. the jobless num
, a tradition that dates back to ronald reagan. the nomination of john kerry officially to serve as secretary of state. his confirmation hearing will take place this thursday. we're told a vote will take place next tuesday. he will be sworn in as secretary of state next wednesday. chuck hagel to head up the funds and j-- head up defense and jack lew as secretary of state. >> i think chuck this is the steepest climb to his nomination. even before it was officially announced, a lot of members on both sides coming out. there were so many republican members, and he is a former senator republican member from nebraska. even members of his own party coming out in opposition. i think he will face a tough time. jack lew i think will also be of the cross hairs. he was sort of the president's point man when it came to the fiscal issues on capitol hill. we have seen through the spending fights that jack lew was the guy to rankle the different positions and bring everyone to some type of agreement and avert disaster. what is funny is the same goodwill he was able to build up through a lot of the past spen
